A Cat Was Found with its Paws and Legs Bound in Electrical Tape: Rescued by Santa Clarita Deputies During Their Search of a “Suspicious” Car

Two deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Santa Clarita Station have been credited with rescuing a cat that was found with its paws and legs bound in electrical tape, authorities said Sunday.

The alert deputies discovered the male cat during their search of a “suspicious” car that was parked behind a closed business on Saturday night, according to a post on the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s Facebook page.

“The occupants of the vehicle were in possession of narcotics,” the post stated.

When they located the cat in the vehicle, he was “buried upside-down” in his carrier, the post stated.

They were further stunned to discover that the feline’s paws and legs were bound together with electrical tape, sheriff’s officials said.

“The helpless cat could not move and was ‘meowing loudly in discomfort’ as the deputies worked quickly to free him,” the post read.

Animal Control officers responded and removed the cat from the unidentified owner, who faced “additional animal cruelty charges,” authorities said.

The cat’s condition was not immediately known.
